Do you enjoy StarCraft eSports as well as free stuff? Then you will definitely want to link your Twitch account with your Battle.net account while you are watching the tournaments because it could score you some cool new in-game portraits.

Heroes of the Storm News Banner

Recently a new Heroes of the Storm patch has hit the PTR that introduced Chromie into the Nexus. Also this past week, there were some balance updates that were implemented in order to improve gameplay! Check out those details here! 

Hearthstone News Banner

There are times when it comes to eSports where issues of sports trickle into the mix. This past Dreamhack Austin there were great competitions and one of those competitors quickly became the target of racism. This week on the show we discuss how Twitch and other online venues need to consider a zero tolerance policy when it comes to racism, sexism, etc. because as an eSports community, we are better than this!

Overwatch News Banner

When World of Warcraft went below 10 million subscribers, people thought the game was ending. What’s it say about the Overwatch Beta when 9.7 Million Players played across all platforms over the course of the weekend?! That’s insane! Check out more additional stats here! 

Also this past week, it seems that some retailers are allowing players to pick up their physical copies one day early on May 23 for the Overwatch launch. If you ordered through Best Buy, GameStop, or Amazon, you may want to check your email because you may be able to get your hands on your game early!

With Overwatch, there are a lot of new Lore content being released in a constant stream! Check out the new Digital comic “ A Better World” feature Symmetra here. You can also catch the latest animated short “ Dragons” featuring Genji and Hanzo here!
